Mate, over here in Oz, I have one maxim:

All sharks have teeth, all spiders have eight legs, and all snakes have fangs.  ;)

A snake will take care of any rats or mice and will make your train room a more exciting place to be.

May I suggest the urgent purchase of a mongoose?  He might enjoy playing trains as well.  Our cat, now sadly deceased, certainly did.

Still, it brings a new sense of drama if you were to see something snaking round the curves on this lovely layout.  It might not be 'Flying Scotsman' after all...

And as for that hissing from the vicinity of a non-sound equipped locomotive!

Stay safe.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1930s to the 1950s.

For the made-up background to the railway and list of characters, please see here: https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=38281.msg607991#msg607991

Or paint the snake silver and its head red and you will have something that looks very much like the Santa Fe Super Chief travelling along your rails.

Ha ha, what a lovely response! I shall ignore yours, Webbo, even though that is a really cool photo  :P ;)

I did some investigating as to the wildlife today, and learned a few things. Will post results for interested parties soon, in meantime I'm trying to win a raffle at local club  :thumbsup: :beers:

Gives track cleaning a whole new meaning (and level of excitement).  :goggleeyes:

Is that a typo? Surely you meant 'excrement' :laugh:

Mickeyflinn, it is indeed.  :thumbsup:

Now you've got me embarrassed....

I've got hair!!!!

The video was made as a short to show at care homes by a guy who really didn't know a thing about model railways.

He insisted I wrote and did the narration. Circa  1994, I think.

Eeeek!  :-[

Thanks so much for digging that out!  :beers:

Nice one George. I like the 60s porn star look. You certainly sounded like a native Ozzie, what happened.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

See why I don't start serious layout threads? Attracts comedians!

I love it!  ;D :thumbsup:

No, it's all cool, Roger. The post prompted me to contact WIRES. (NSW Wildfife Information Rescue and Education  Service). They seem to think it's a possom.

Anyway, an inspection by myself this morning failed to reveal a fanged creature.

All good, mate! :thumbsup:

But that's just one of a number of possumbilities.

Will one Maxim be enough to keep all those at bay?
